Last Saturday night the Triangle Church staged its first major public event since it opened at the end of last year and what better way to celebrate this occasion than to invite the internationally-acclaimed Wingates Band to perform for us.

And they certainly did not disappoint!

A sell-out audience was treated to a superb programme of pieces representing their wide-range of styles and skills, expertly led by their conductor, Paul Andrews, which left us all wishing we could have heard more.

The evening also had a special significance for the Triangle and the Band as it commemorated a 230 year old connection. In April 1784, John Wesley visited both the Delph Hill and Wingates areas of the town within the same week during his travels across the country.

As a result of this Methodist Churches were built on both sites within the next 50 years. So we found ourselves standing (or sitting) on the site of the original Delph Hill Methodist Church listening to the band formed at Wingates Methodist Church 140 years ago. A true cause for celebration and one which John Wesley & the founders of the 2 Churches would have justifiably been proud of!

Thanks to all the Church members who helped to make this excellent evening such a success by assisting with the catering, raffle, sound & light and room preparation. We look forward to many more events of this calibre in the future. Stuart Whittle

Do Nothing To Change Your Life

Call to worship: Jesus said “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Spiritual de-clutter

Les has always said that when I die on my grave stone it’s going to say “She cluttered!” I do clutter it’s quite true. I don’t like to throw things away and I’m the magpie that collects everything because you never know when it will come in useful! Everything can be turned into a sermon illustration!
